Least we forget - Joshua Mauldin was a Christian Fundamentalist looking for work as a youth pastor at the time he committed this unspeakable act. His excuse at the time was that Satan made him do it. Or course, his story changed during the trial.
Prosecutors said Mauldin hurt his daughter because he was angry that he was in a loveless marriage and he didn't want to take care of the infant. They also said Mauldin had a history of violence and of lying about being mentally ill to get out of trouble.
Joshua Mauldin is eligible for parole in 12.5 years. Perhaps by then his prison therapy, also known as "bitch therapy", will have changed his outlook on life. Maybe then he can get some counseling to deal with the trauma he is about to endure.
What ever happened to "cook a child, get the chair"? Galveston is in Texas, right?
